Vermont poetry vs. money

Dear Editor,

Old River Road, Woodstock … fabled with antiquity … with love

laughing water her companion attacked for a view

along with the out of turn bull frogs, singing peepers, trout, foxes, raccoon, deer

… with birds, lightning bugs on and on …

Where are the Amazon warriors to protect her?

Where is Woodstock Town Hall to protect her?

Giant machine ripping cherry maple pines out of the ground sad … ghastly

crunch, snap, thrown into a pile all for a view of the Ottauquechee River … come down enjoy the view

over the dying trees

you can’t miss it

you will feel tears

… of once historical old River Road.

James “Ivan” DeRosia, Woodstock
